6.30AM -9AM . A lovely morning if a bit cold out to try and get Cuckoo and House Martin .
Stopped at Allders for Hirundines and found none but a Cuckoo calling over the noise of the Boot Fair. On to Holborough where I heard and saw another cuckoo, to Brooklands and a flyover pair of Oystercatchers Making NHGP list 90. A further Cuckoo was heard from the Path round the sunken marsh. The numbers of singing Nightingales need to be heard to be believed. Plenty of Reed Warblers with the Black caps / Chiff Chaff/ Willow Warblers today. For the second day only one hirundine a swallow.
